Causing cash confusion

I headed over to Old Navy today. The Daughter is dressing up in green on Friday, celebrating St Patrick's Day (which isn't until Monday, but since it's spring break - alas - wearing green and egg hunting at the same time - preschool multitasking). Not that she has an entirely pink wardrobe (I try my best), but I couldn't find a single green item. So - Old Navy here I come.

I fond a green t-shirt only after 30 seconds and happily went to the check outs. And managed to cause complete confusion since I was paying with cash. Real money. Green bucks. The poor store clerk couldn't open the cashier's box to get my change back and after several attempts the managed had to be called.

Plastic is the way to go.

Oj oj vad kontanter kan vålla problem. Jag brukar nästan alltid betala med kort, sällan jag har kontanter på mig.

Jag betalar också nästan alltid med kort. Har därför sällan så mycket kontanter på mig. Vilket i sig kan vålla problem de gånger man är på restauranger eller i taxis som inte tar kort.

Desiree - ja, jag har i princip aldrig cash - men råkade ha en $20 i plånboken för ovanlighetens skull.

Saltistjejen - jag är urusel på att ha cash faktiskt. Dumt - man borde alltid ha - man vet aldrig när man kan behöva.
